THE CONCLUSION OF THE NBA FINALS LIFTS ABC TO VICTORY
It was no contest on Thursday, of course, with the Miami Heat victory on The NBA Finals igniting ABC to an average 12.91 million viewers and a 5.3 rating/16 share among adults 18-49 in primetime. Overall, the game five match-up is expected to hover in the 16-million, high-6 adult 18-49 rating range.
Elsewhere, Justin Bieber had no “fever” on NBC for the second consecutive day; Canadian drama Saving Hope is a bust on NBC; non-scripted Fox duo Take Me Out and The Choice are nothing to boast about; and Breaking Pointe on The CW is still under one-million viewers. No one ever said finding an audience (particularly opposite the conclusion of The NBA Finals would be easy).
